|Right-Side Out Cookies|
Alice and I baked these cookies during her visit last week. She suggested that we make "Inside Out" cookies. We found a Betty Crocker recipe on the web but we changed it a little -- here it is as we made it:
Right-Side Out Cookies
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 & 1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 & 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup Hershey's cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 & 1/2 cups white or chocolate baking chips OR 54 Hershey Kisses
1 cup chopped nuts (we used pecans)
- Heat oven to 350ºF. Measure and mix together the flour, soda, cocoa, and salt.
- Cream sugars, butter, vanilla and eggs in large bowl of mixer until smooth. Slowly add dry ingredient mixture. Add the chips (if you are using them) and the nuts.
- Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet, leaving room for the cookies to spread out. If using kisses, unwrap them and press one into each cookie.
- Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until set. Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet. Cool on wire rack. Makes 54 cookies.
